Brangelina Baby BORN!

Ladies and Gents, Kings and Queens, Bums and Bagladies -- this is the post you've awaited so very very long (well, since you discovered the pregnancy about five month ago) It's finally here...

Yup, while you were away living your anonymous lives, the so-called most gorgeous baby in the world (though only a handful of people have seen it as yet) was born on the night of 27 May in Namibia to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt...the little girl was named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt and it's gonna have a damn good life!

In media terms, this is a great story not just because the main characters are two very attractive, successful young people who have found love and created a family (the Jolie-Pitts already have two adopted children, 4-year-old boy Maddox and toddlerette Zahara) but because it's a tale of modern love, complete with bravery, passion and, oddly-enough for a couple of wealthy Hollywooders, compassion (you know, adoption, UN ambassadorships, architecture for humanity, etc...).

They met on the set of the film Mr and Mrs Smith and became friends nearly two years ago (Brad swears that though he had developed an emotional involvement with Angelina, it didn't go further than that till he had ended his relationship with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston and she says she believes him). Once Brad's divorce was finalized, he initiated the process of adopting Angelina's kiddies and -- bet you didn't know this -- both she and Brad legally changed their last names to Jolie-Pitt at this time. Wow. Moseying along down lover's lane, the Jolie-Pitts got pregnant and nine months later we have a happy little family with everything but a marriage certificate to seal the deal. These people are doubtless going to entertain us for some time to come. First stop: the multimillion dollar photos of the newborn sprout...cLiCk!
